Because of the horrible printing process back then, it's quite a job repairing just one story...I wanted to do THIS story, because of it's rarity, & because it's the cover story, as well....
I think it looks much better with the brightening, retouching, re-rendering, re-coloring, contrasting, & fixing the sloppy color separations....
